The Viganò Testimony: One Year Later

Cardinal Pell Goes After The Germanzonian Synod—From Jail

In this video, I review the turning points and revelations that have come in the year since former papal Nuncio to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, released his first public letter—which he titled a Testimony (see link below for PDF of actual text). A communique from the Holy See Press Office on October 6 last year promised a full investigation. So far, nothing

Has Archbishop Viganò been exposed as a liar, or have his allegations been borne out by other facts? I take a closer look.

I count three vindications of his central claims: 1) Viganò version of events was corroborated by McCarrick’s long time secretary Mgsr. Anthony Figueiredo in his Figueiredo Report, but regarding the papal sanctions against McCarrick and the fact that then Cardinal Donald Wuerl knew all about it. (Remember, Archbishop Viganò said flat out that, “The Cardinal lies shamelessly.”) 2) Another corroboration came from Monsignor Jean-François Lantheaume, the former first counsellor at the apostolic nunciature in Washington D.C., who said that the former nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, told “the truth.” 3) Another corroboration came rising from the past, in the form of a 2006 letter unearthed by LifeSiteNews sent from Archbishop Leonardo Sandri of the Secretary of State to New York priest Father Boniface Ramsey, which confirmed that the Holy See knew of sexual abuse allegations against ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick as early as 2000. 4) Archbishop Viganò has been vindicated in his claims that Monsignor Walter Rossi, rector of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., and a notorious gay mafia leader who, so the open secret allegations go, had engaged in homosexual harassment of seminarians and others. Both the dioceses of Scranton, PA and Washington DC have begun formal investigations into Rossi’s pattern of despicable behavior. So that’s good. If you want to hear the specifics, click on the link below for my interview with journalist George Neumayr of “The American Spectator.” All in all, a year later, the facts show that Archbishop Vigano has been vindicated over and over again. God bless and keep you strong, Archbishop Viganò. Thank you for your priestly courage. It’s damn inspiring. You give hope to literally millions of Catholics who love Jesus Christ and want to see Him better loved.
